PhoenixTTD your few seconds is up--has the iphone 9 solved chess now?
Yes, apparently with perfect play white can give up two pawns and win. Who knew?
Its not about the amount of data you store. Solving chess cannot be done by brute force, since the computer cannot evaluate all the possibilities of chess. The game has the possibility of never ending but still not being a draw. I feel if two perfect players were playing lets say with a rook and king vs rook and king, the game won't end. (Or if there is a rule agains this possibility plz enlighten me).Unlike checkers or card games or connect four, chess doesnt end, you dont simply run out of moves.Even if somehow someone figured out the algorithm for solving chess, you would need 10^90 years on a 1 Mhz processor. maybe 1000 times faster on a GHz, or even a THz processor (1000000 times faster). That barely changed the amount of time you need from a human perpective. 10^90 or 10^84 years, thats not much of a change. Number of possibilities in chess grows faster than an exponential function. MUCH FASTER.There are physical barriers(light barrier, quantum) preventing us from ever solving chess. Laws of (known)physics must be altered to solve chess.
Call the Doctor. I notice there are no chess sets in the Tardis.
Well, I solved it :) I just did, really!
please share! First and only glance I saw a draw.
Lets see how that works out with Moore's law.
If it takes 10^90 years with that processor, then in a mere 520 years according to my calculations it will take only one year. Which basically means chess can be solved exactly 521 years from now.
Except that it's a very flawed assumption to assert that Moores law will continue to hold for the next 520 years.
Chess doesn't need to be solved, it's not a problem. It's a GAME.
The question of whether there is a forced win from the starting position or if the game is drawn with best play from both sides is the "problem". This is the question at the heart of "solving" chess.
Chess is 10^43 problems, a fraction of which are solved. Some of these "solutions" have changed over the past century or two. Here's one that was solved by Alexei Shirov but that continues to defy computers:
